UFC's Rashad Evans thinks Chael Sonnen can compete with Jon Jones

Former UFC Light Heavyweight champ Rashad Evans spoke to Fight Hub TV and told them he likes the Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen match up at UFC 159.

Fight Hub TV caught up with former UFC Light Heavyweight champ Rashad Evans and asked him what he thought about UFC 159's Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen title fight. Here's what Rashad told them:

"It's alright man. Chael's my boy and I think he's gonna put on a good show for TUF. Jon gets a chance to try and smash somebody that was talking a lot of trash. I'm definitely confident in (Chael's) ability to compete. This is MMA. If he lands the right punch or he does his thing where he takes him down and mauls him it could be a very competitive fight."

Evans is expected to face Dan Henderson at UFC 161 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in June.
